Welcome to my website.

I work at the intersection of research, consultancy and publishing and the issues I deal with cut across politics, economics and business.

I am Managing Director of Social Europe Publishing & Consulting GmbH, a leading digital media and consulting company. Furthermore, I am a Research Associate of the Public Policy Group at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and at Cambridge University’s Centre for Business Research. Previously, I was John F. Kennedy Memorial Policy Fellow at Harvard University, Senior Visiting Fellow at LSE and a Visiting Fellow at Cornell University.

I studied politics, economics and business at Trier University, different London universities and the University of Oxford. I work primarily on European and global economic and political issues and in the areas of strategy development, digital publishing and policy responses to technological change.

I have commented on major news channels such as CNBC, BBC News, Sky News, Al Jazeera International, ZDF, France 24 and SBS Australia and am also a regular contributor to newspapers and magazines such as The Guardian, DIE ZEIT, El Pais, Foreign Affairs and the New York Times.
